Our history.

  • Gelmart was founded by the Nasser family as the Philippine American Embroideries Company, manufacturing embroidered handkerchiefs: one of the first companies to produce goods overseas for the US market.

  • Expanded into other categories including apparel and accessories, hats, gloves and children's wear.

  • Philippine manufacturing operations shifted to become fully vertical, bringing all phases of the supply chain under one roof. The Nasser family then purchased Gelmart Industries, an established bra manufacturing company. Became the largest manufacturer in the far east with over 15K workers.

  • Explosive growth at Gelmart, forging partnerships with Walmart, Kmart and Sears. Gelmart manufacturers across the complete spectrum of apparel: childrenswear, ladies dresses, jeans, bras, foundation garments, gloves, socks, etc.

  • Global expansion, opening manufacturing in Egypt, Haiti, China, Indonesia and India.

  • Gelmart appoints three new Board of Directors, who are children of the founders: Yossi Nasser, Rafael Nasser, and James Nasser.

  • Yossi Nasser appointed as president and CEO of Gelmart. He has focused on turning around the 65-year-old family business, and growing it to the next frontier with initiatives in brand and direct to consumer

  • Opened an office in mainland China equipped with a product development and sourcing center, and a state-of-the-art sample room.

  • Launched disruptive $3.98 retail bra for Walmart.

  • Signed lounge and sleepwear license for C&C California, to begin new phase of brand acquisition strategy.

  • Gelmart co-founds and incubates LIVELY, a D-T-C lifestyle brand.
